Judgment No. 636
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
The appeal is against a decision to fill a post for which the complainant had been rejected four months before. As such the appeal is unarguable unless it can be shown that the two events are linked. The complainant must show that the true reason for his rejection [...] was not his lack of qualification but was an abuse of power, being wrongly motivated by the intention to secure the appointment of [another official] in the following months. The evidence tendered [...] falls far short of this."
